Football’s Fittest 36

September 21, 2009

Lads, you can keep Lucy Pinder and Gemma Atkinson. This one is for those of us who appreciate a good looking man along with our football.

You won’t see David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, or Freddie Ljungberg in this list.
I like dudes who look like dudes. White, Black, Latino, and Asian. I’m an equal opportunity appreciator. And no, I’m not a massive cougar but I’ve included some of the younger players because although mere tadpoles, they deserve recognition too.

Firstly, I’d like to thank Kickette because I poached about half of these photos from their website.

And Now. My choices for 36 extra reasons to love football.

In no particular order:

You know what I just noticed?  In the photo I chose to represent this post, Roque is donning even more clothing than we’re used to seeing him wear.  I don’t think we’d see the same in a WAG countdown.  Oh ladies, we’re so civilized……

So, do you think I’m way off the mark?  I know my facial scruff fetish isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
Which footballer do you think deserves the title of Fittest?  Feel free to add your own favorite.

      I swear footballer years are like dog years. These dudes do not look 22 and 24 etc. :-P

        Hang on! Aaron Ramsey!! The boy is about 12. Youre old enough to be his mother. Super-cougar-skillz. I can see it now..”So Aaron, do you like salt and vinegar square crisps” Poor boy ;-)

    This is just what us girls need on a dull grey Monday! Plenty to smile about now!

    I really struggled with my vote!

    Although I was surprised there was no Thierry Henry… yum!

      We needed to break up the Man United heavy posting!
      I had to vote Ryan Giggs. An 18 year long crush takes something special.

    I’m thinking Lorik Cana will make more fans out of frustrated Magpie ladies and sell their ladies size shirts better.

    Ramsey? Well, I don’t know anything about fit guys, but I don’t really understand that haha. Can I vote Torres or Fàbregas just because they’re Spaniards? LOL.

    • September 21, 2009 1:56 pm

      Just saying. In a few years, Ramsey is going to get noticed.
      You can vote for whoever you want and I hope straight men do vote. If you asked me “who’s hotter- Sylvie VDV or Alex Gerrard?” I could answer easily. Men certainly know when another dude is handsome.

        there should be a button for Lorik Cana! His name is up there afterall! haha

    Bonus points for the underrated Samaras and Kranjcar, as well as the oft-maligned Rio Ferdinand. Once he cut those braid off, he got way cute.

    As far as cougaring goes, You could put Maldini YESTERDAY up there (he was spotted on the Milan sideline) and he would crush EVERYONE on that list.

      Haha I know Maldini is a favorite among most ladies. And he certainly is more virile than the Ronaldos and Beckhams. Something about him doesn’t do it for me. His face looks kinda smooshed or something?
      Can’t put my finger on it but just not in my personal choices for top 36.

      Something just seems off to me. Beautiful eyes though.

    Well with the likes of Giggs, Rio, Hartley & McCourt in there, there must be hope for me yet ;-).

    Nice surprise to see Bocanegra there though (i see him quite a lot in Rennes).

    In 2010, Philippines has fully embraced football. Yea, we love baskeball, but no one can stop us kicking the ball. Watch the AFF Suzuki Cup. The underdog Philippines has beaten the defending Champion Vietnam (2-0) that advanced them to the semi. And absolutely, the Younghusband brothers are hot Filipinos.
